   Crossing the Piasau Bridge into Piasau Camp and onwards to Lutong, home to Sarawak Shell Berhad and Petronas Caligali – both involved in explorations and productions of crude petroleum in offshore oil fields.
   Lutong was made the hub of oil production activities in Miri when the production reached 95,000 barrels a day. This is also made possible as Lutong is stretched along the seashore.The oil boom drew population to this used-to-be sleepy town and today, has become a bustling small town.

Lutong Mosque
   Driving past Lutong Town, you will be amazed by the sight of a church and a mosque built in the same compound as Malaysians of different faiths live in harmony.

   From Lutong, you will proceed to the First Oil Well in Malaysia, located on the famous Canada Hill. The history was in 1910, a team of Canadian engineers were drilling, pumping the 'black gold' and making themselves noticed in other ways on the ridge behind the town. Hence, the name Canada Hill.

   The hilltop is still crowned as the first oil well, affectionately known as the 'Grand Old Lady'. It is a fine lookout point over Miri City and the offshore drilling sites. Today, the old well shares her vantage point with the Petroleum Museum, a popular visitor's attraction.

You can find various types of tropical & rainforest fruits and vegetables including fern tops, edible leaves, mushrooms and the infamous sago grubs...you may not like to eat them, but they make irresistable photos!
